As the noontime show “It’s Showtime” is going to celebrate its 10th anniversary this month, the hosts recalled some of their most unforgettable moments. Among those was when their rival show, “Eat Bulaga” launched the popular loveteam of Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza.

For Anne and Vice, the “birth” of AlDub in 2015 was a learning and a humbling experience for all of them.

Vice shared, “It was a humbling experience. It was a learning experience. Maraming naituro sa amin ang pangyayaring yun, hindi lang sa programa namin at sa buong network at sa amin personal.”

The host talked about how it felt to see their fans and viewers turn their backs on them.

He said, “Maraming naituro sa akin. Naituro sa akin na ang panahon ay hindi mo hawak, ang pus0 rin ng ibang tao ay hindi mo hawak.”

“Ang tanging magagawa mo lang ay ang magpasalamat sa pagkakataong minamahal ka nila at mahalin mo din sila sa mga pagkakataong minamahal mo sila. At kung hahabaan pa nila yung pagmamahal nila para sa ’yo, e, isang malaking biyaya na ‘yun mula sa langit,” Vice explained.

Anne also recalled how the rest of the show’s cast and crew stood together as family.

She said, “I think, it’s part of the journey ng Showtime, ‘di ba, you have to experience something that will humble you. And we grew stronger as a family. We all, alam yun, put so much heart into not giving up on our show. And I think that’s what reached out to our viewers. That’s what they saw.”
